Creamy Tuscan Chicken

  • This creamy tuscan chicken recipe is a quick and simple meal that is loaded with flavor thanks to the pesto and 5 cheese blend.  Another big plus is that it is on the table in only 30 minutes!!  The cream cheese and 5 cheese blend adds richness and the tomatoes add a burst of sweetness.  My family really enjoys this meal and it is great with pasta.
